Waning Crescent Moon 08-12-12
The Waning Crescent Moon..Just love it when it gets to this phase, and its clear, as it means it will be dark for most of the night, at least until this phase rises in the Early Am! The Moon is heading towards New Moon once again. Yes, great for us deep sky guys! Captured this on Sunday 08-12-12 with my Modified Canon Rebel Xsi & 10" SCT scope. 1/200 second exposure, ISO 400, from my backyard observatory in Dayton, Ohio.
